Programme Notes / Performance Details :The Singing Drums for Four Timpani (one player) in two movements was completed in early March of 2005 and is dedicated to Peter Jarvis.
This composition for timpani solo explores the production of melody, and pitch fluctuation in the melody by using the pedal of the instrument. It explores the various percussive timbre qualities of the timpani including playing on the rim and rim shot as the contrapuntal rhythmic counterpart to the melody.
This composition hopes to reveal the remarkable potential of the timpani as a colorful solo instrument. - Eugene Lee
